‘Being a volunteer is a privilege to be able to share knowledge of the Mary Rose to a large variety of visitors from all over the World. It is interesting, fun and tremendously satisfying to be part of the team.’
We are currently recruiting a number of new Volunteer Buggy Drivers to assist those with mobility needs by driving between the entrance of the Historic Dockyard and the Mary Rose. As a member of our team, full training will be provided.
One of our regular drivers had the following to say about driving the buggy: -
‘I had recently retired and was looking for an interest to fill my time. I volunteer for the Mary Rose Museum as a buggy driver two days a week days. It has given me the opportunity to meet visitors from all over the World and all walks of life. I love to chat to them and listen to their enthusiasm regarding their Mary Rose experience.’
If you are over the age of 21, hold a full, clean driving licence, interested in volunteering at the Mary Rose and available from 09:45am-17:30 for at least one day each week, we would love to hear from you.
Work alongside our friendly Guest Relations Team at the entrance to Portsmouth Historic Dockyard, you will meet and greet visitors and engage with them in making the most of their visit, including signposting to what is on that day. You will also have the opportunity to assist with manning the information desk.
As part of our training scheme you will undergo an initial induction and full support and ongoing training will also be provided.
